Southern Strums returns at National Convention

May 31, 2023

The NFB of Texas is proud to partner with Harley's Wallet to bring you a cherished convention tradition, Southern Strums, back for one year only! Harley's Wallet is a nonprofit established in loving memory of Harley Fetterman, a beloved student and federationist who passed away from cancer in 2016. Harley's Wallet supports causes and programs for blind kids and kids with cancer. Your $10 donation will support scholarships, Braille books, and help provide the Harley Fetterman Charts and Graphs Award at the National Braille Challenge.

On the evening of July 3, from 8:00-11:00 (check the agenda for room details) we will showcase authentic acoustic live music from talented federationists. We will also, of course, have a cash bar. We know everything is better in Texas, including our musical abilities, so we hope to see many of you there!

Interested in performing? We are looking for you to:
- Bring your own instrument (guitar, keyboard) and sing.
- Be prepared to play 3-5 covers (about 20 minute sets)
- Recruit a large cheering section to attend!

Slots are limited, so we are asking for those of you who are interested in performing to send us a 3 minute sound clip audition as an attachment to by 11:59 PM Central Time June 20, 2023. If you are an original Southern Strums performer, you get priority!

Please share widely. Thanks in advance for helping us make this a unique and special celebration of music, fellowship, and Harley Fetterman, one of the proudest Texans and federationists we've had the good fortune to know.
